    Look at the replies to the tweet. Rival fans are giddy about this. It's insane we've gotten to this point.

    Utterly ridiculous. Dak hasn't earned the right to be the NFL's highest paid player - not by a long shot.

    And I'm a Dak fan...

    He doesn’t deserve to be but market is market. There aren’t 8 QBs id take over him, especially not Wentz

    The cowboys front office should totally base their decisions on what rival fans on Twitter have to say.

    I mean who isn't shocked by this. Jerry caves in almost every negotiation.

    Right until the next QB gets extended. People read into the market too much.

    Wealth doesn't buy inner happiness.

    Ask this guy.

    Howard Hughes net worth: Howard Hughes was an American business tycoon, film director and producer, aviator and engineer who had a net worth equal to $11 billion at the time of his death ($2.5 billion in 1976).

    I wouldn't put too much stock into it, Zordon.

    Watson, Jackson, and Mahomes are going to crash the market when it's their turn.

    I'd take the $11b and figure it out.

    If you don't have friends with $11b, you certainly aren't going to have them if your *** is broke.

    Think about this............. Jerry has negotiated three big contracts in the last two years.

    In each one, he buckled and made that player the highest paid player in the league at that position per AAV (Lawrence, then Elliott, then Cooper).

    And he's about to do it again here with Dak. Because he's a crappy negotiator and players and agents know he'll buckle.

    When all is said and done, we'll probably be wasting $10MM of so of cap space each year because he overpaid each of these four players.

    On paper I’m sure.

    it’s all about the guarantees and the underlying language in these deals.

    He will be the highest paid player until later this year and next year when 1-5 other players will probably make more than him.
